Although Nintendo Switch’s Mario Kart 8 Deluxe released on April 28, it comfortably took the number one sport in UK’s retail sales chart for the month of April. It was a generally quiet period, especially in comparison to March, but this is still quite a feat.
Ubisoft’s successful Ghost Recon Wildlands was the runner-up, followed by the unstoppable Grand Theft Auto V.
Elsewhere, Atlus’ Persona 5 came in at number 7 but worth noting that it suffered from a shortage of supply in the country. And just outside the top ten are Overwatch and Horizon Zero Dawn.
The full chart is as follows:
1. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Nintendo)
2. Ghost Recon: Wildlands (Ubisoft)
3. Grand Theft Auto V (Rockstar)
4. LEGO Worlds (Warner Bros)
5. FIFA 17 (EA)
6. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Nintendo)
